Sometimes, you just need a cookie. And while these cookies aren’t overly healthy, they are “healthier” than your average cookie. Plus they are vegan and taste delicious.
I especially like them as a breakfast cookie.
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup yacon or brown rice syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1.5 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup Red Raspberry Galaxy Granola
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
- 1 tbsp raw shredded coconut (unsweetened)
- 1 tbsp ground chia or flax plus 3 tbsp water
Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, cream applesauce and sugar together, add yacon (or brown rice) syrup and vanilla until mixed well. Add oats, Galaxy Granola, and salt. Fold in sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and coconut. Mix well. Finally add the “chia egg” by mixing 1 tbsp ground chia (or flax) with 3 tbsp water. Add to the mixture and stir completely.
Spoon mixture into non-stick mini cupcake tins. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely or they may teat apart easily. And enjoy! YUM!
